  • "Very comfortable, well equipped and convenient location (5 mins drive from A65, walking distance from station, supermarket & town centre)."

    Suited me very well. 5G Wifi access was a bit patchy, but slightly better in the downstairs bedroom than in the upstairs lounge.

  • "Foxholes Lodge is a lovely, quirky, comfortable property."

    The owners, Graham and Lynn, are very friendly and welcoming. The location is fantastic, it's only a 10 minute walk to the Settle railway station and the centre of Settle is only a couple of minutes walk from there where there is a good range of places to eat and drink, plus two lovely pubs in Giggleswick which both serve great food.

  • "Foxholes was a lovely little cottage in giggleswick and the owners were very helpful it was an upside down cottage which was difficult for us as we are not good on stairs we had to carry meals upstairs from the kitchen to the sitting room to eat and trying to balance everything on a try was not safe it was not the cottage for us."

    This is a cottage for someone more able it’s great to see all the lovely little villages around in the dales .

  • "A cosy and comfortable place to stay, with offroad parking and a lovely view from the living room windows."

    The layout is quirky but we liked that. It's conveniently situated a short walk from the centre of Settle, and there are numerous pleasant walks from the door. The owners are friendly and helpful. Settle is also an ideal base for exploring the surrounding towns, villages and countryside. We had a very enjoyable week and would like to return.

  • "The property was perfect for our needs - it was warm, has a comfortable lounge and bedroom, a decent shower and a well equipped kitchen."

    We didn't spend much time at the house as we were out and about hiking. It is easy to walk into the centres of Settle & Giggleswick, and there are many hikes from the house or just a short drive away. We hardly saw the owners next door, but they were very friendly when we did. A great base for a week in the Dales.

  • "My husband and I had a lovely weeks stay at Foxholes."

    It's in a quiet residential area of Giggleswick with two off road car parking spaces. It is about a 10 minute walk into Settle. The property was quirky with the lounge and bathroom upstairs and the small kitchen and double bedroom downstairs but it was fine once we got used to carrying our food and drinks upstairs. Lynne and Graham the owners live next door and they are really friendly. I'll definitely return to Foxholes as it's the ideal place to stay for visiting Settle and the surrounding areas.

  • "My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay at Foxholes Lodge."

    It is located in a nice residential area in Giggleswick which is a level 10 minute walk from the centre of Settle which has a choice of pubs and restaurants and a few shops. The cottage has everything needed for a comfortable stay, with a convenient off-road car parking space. The layout is unusual having a nice Lounge and a shower room upstairs, and the small kitchen and double bedroom downstairs, which means having to carry food and drink upstairs to the small dining table in the Lounge, but this did not bother us at all. The Lounge is really nice with good views of the hills above Settle. Wi-fi did not work for us in the Lounge, but worked fine downstairs in the Bedroom and outside on the rear patio. The owners, Graham and Lynne, live in the attached bungalow next door and are really friendly. We are happy to recommend Foxholes Lodge for couples wanting to stay near Settle which has lovely walks all around.

  • "The property is not as pictured online and is not a cosy romantic setting at all."

    Both external doors in the kitchen and bedroom are thick with mould, leaving an unbearable smell of foist and damp throughout the property. We spent all of our days day and most of our nights out of the property because of this and only used it for sleeping. Very disappointed as this was not what we were led to believe from the pictures online.

  • "We had a amazing week at Foxholes Lodge!"

    Such a cosy cottage with its quirky stairs. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed was so comfortable that I slept soundly on our first night away (which I’ve never done before). It has its own private garden with table and chairs and off road parking space. It’s so ideally situated, being close to all the walks we wanted to do (Ingleton waterfalls walk, Malham Cove/Tarn/ Janet’s Foss, Clapham/Gaping Gill, Pen y Ghent. It’s just a short stroll to Settle which has a wonderful Booth’s supermarket. The Old Naked Man cafe is well worth a visit, but beware - the smells coming out of it on a Sunday morning will make you salivate! The fish and chip shop opposite is excellent. Our hosts Graham, Lynn, Maggie and Rosie were very welcoming and friendly and happy to share their knowledge of the local area. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect week and will be returning to Foxholes Lodge soon. Thank you!

  • "Cosy, peaceful cottage."

    Ideal for a variety of walks from the doorstep. Approx. 10min walk from Settle town centre, where there are plenty of places to eat & drink. We really loved it but wouldn't recommend for people who are unsteady on their feet as the kitchen is downstairs & lounge upstairs, which means carrying hot drinks/food upstairs.

  • "A comfortable and ideally situated annexe, with the Dales right on the doorstep."

    Perfect for a car free vacation as everything is close enough that you could park up on arrival day and not need the car till the day you leave. My only complaint would be the wifi, which is non existant in the comfortable lounge.

  • "Very well equipped and comfortable, and warm morning and evening."

    The wifi was a bit erratic upstairs but fine on the half landing between bedroom and kitchen, and for writing emails in bed. A warning re the low ceiling in the kitchen by the fridge would be useful (I bumped my head a couple of times getting stuff out of the fridge/cupboards). But a lovely little cottage, v well situated for walking the Dales, and only a short walk into Settle (butchers, bakers, Booths, and the start of some great walks). I'd definitely stay here again, and good to note that several others thought so too from the visitors book. Lots of repeat visits, which is top feedback in itself.

    Everything was well stocked and met our needs. We also met the owners who were very welcoming and friendly. The wi-fi signal was quite weak, maybe just needs a signal booster.

The Royal Oak pub in Settle was very welcoming and we were served by friendly staff. Definitely recommend the cottage and the location.

About the location


Settle 0.8 mile; Malham 7.3 miles; Skipton 16.2 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
